Deadmau5 criticises Madonna, David Guetta and Skrillex
The DJ told Rolling Stone that if she wants to come into his "world", then she should do it with a "little more dignity". He said:
"You want to be 'hip' and 'cool' and 'funky grandma'? Fine. It's not my place to say you're irrelevant. If you're gonna come into my world, at least do it with a little more dignity."
He continued: "I understand she has millions more fans, and is way more successful than I'll ever be. But it's like talking about slavery at a f***ing blues concert. It's inappropriate."
"David Guetta has two iPods and a mixer and he just plays tracks - like, 'Here's one with Akon, check it out!'. Even Skrillex isn't doing anything too technical. He has a laptop and a MIDI recorder, and he's just playing his s**t."
He concluded: "People are, thank God, smartening up about who does what - but there's still button-pushers getting paid half a million. And not to say I'm not a button-pusher. I'm just pushing a lot more buttons."
